I remember a time very much like what you are describing. My husband was very ill and my children...were children needing a great mom! I felt like I was waiting for the shoe to drop at anytime with my husbands illness and yet trying to live each day to it's fullest because I knew they were limited with my husband and with my children having a father. I felt so anxious and I got so many speeding tickets I had to take defensive driving to keep my liscense...oh my the insurance rates!!! Anyway, for me it was like I needed the answers to get things under control. If I had it to do over again I would go to therapy every other day just to talk through the anxiety. I haven't been able to accomplish this myself but...Your therapist is there for you and he is being paid for his time...use it!!!! Your T does enjoy you as a person and I can tell from what you say he really wants to help you. It isn't about the T its about what he represents and can give you that nobody else can right now. Please set your cruse control and take care of you!!! I'm not sure this will help but know I care and my heart goes out to you. I pray for you and your family daily.
